Let the kids decide what color handprints they want to use. We have decided to use black fingers with a yellow palm for our penguins.
Use a small paint brush to add a thin layer of paint to their hand. Make sure you have the wipes handy!!
Cover their hands with paint and place their hand with their fingers pointing down with their palms just under the penguin’s head. Press down all along their hand to make sure the handprint transfers fully.
Pull the child’s hand up carefully, ensuring you don’t smudge the handprints.
Let it dry completely before coloring the penguins and the snowflakes.
